Roads are dangerous things, we all know that. Terrible things can happen on them even when people are trying to be safe. When crazy things occur like a driver jumping out of a moving car, anything can happen. But when all looks fairly normal? You still have to be aware.

Luckily, the guy in the video you’re about to see has brilliant reactions to a situation which occurs seemingly out of nowhere. Admittedly, conditions are poor for driving or riding a motorcycle, but everything seems okay until a hydroplane makes the rider lose control and hit the deck. Not only is he in trouble (as well the people in oncoming cars), his girlfriend is riding pillion and skids off at high speed too…

But without even thinking, the hero biker manages to grab hold of her as they slide down the road, and helps guide her away from oncoming traffic and into safety. Thank God they were wearing their full safety leathers.
